Spring Term 2022

Second Half Term


We hope you all had a lovely half term and managed to get out and about despite the stormy weather! 

This half term we will be basing our learning around a variety of books and stories, both modern and traditional including Handa's Surprise, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and Dora's Eggs. We will be looking for the signs of seasonal change as Spring approaches and finding out about the celebrations of Mother's Day and Easter.


We have now set up our role play area in nursery as a cafe after our visit to The Pudding Pantry. Your children were beautifully behaved and we all had a wonderful and memorable time.

Our Visit to The Pudding Pantry

Spring Term 2022

Welcome back to a new term and a new year! 

In the first half term we will be thinking about the winter weather and how different animals keep warm in the winter months. We will also be finding out about animals that live in the colder regions of the world.

We will be reading and retelling the story of One Snowy Night and meeting the character of Percy the Park Keeper. The children will be helping to make Percy’s Hut in the garden and we will be inviting the children to make cosy dens for the different animals from the story who have come to stay with us from Percy’s park.

We will be learning about looking after the wildlife in our garden and making feeders for the birds to help keep them fed over the winter months.

Hunting for Percy's Animals

We helped Percy the Park Keeper to find all of the animals from the park. They were hiding in our nursery garden!

Listen to Ms Paulson reading One Snowy Night

One Snowy Night by Nick Butterworth

Where are the animals hiding?

Have a careful look at this page of the book and tell someone in your family where the different animals are hiding. Grown-ups, encourage your child to use prepositions such as under, inside, on top of, next to when describing each animal's position.



Letter Sound of the Week 

(Week beginning 10.1.22)




Have a hunt around your house for things beginning with the w letter sound. It would be great if you could bring in one of the things you find to share with your friends and your teachers. You could keep it on our sound table and even put it in our silly soup!

In the Night - Nocturnal Animals


Over the last week or two we have been thinking about the different things we see at night time and learning about the different animals that are awake in the night and sleep during the day. There is a special word for these animals- nocturnal. Have a look at these pictures of nocturnal animals. Do you know what they are ?

Week Beginning Monday 1st November 2021


Welcome back everybody to a new half term. This is one of my favourite times of year with lots of celebrations approaching including Diwali, Bonfire Night and Christmas. We are looking forward to exciting and memorable times together!


This week we will be finding out about and celebrating the Hindu and Sikh festival of Diwali. This year Diwali takes place on Thursday 4th November November. In nursery we are planning to do lots of fun activities including telling the story of Rama and Sita, drumming and dancing to traditional Indian music, lighting our beautiful divas we are making from clay and tasting some delicious Diwali food. We will have vegetable samosas, poppadums, raitha made from yoghurt and mint and mango chutney. Yum, yum!

Sound of the Week

Bring something in from home that begins with the b sound. We can show our friends and put it on the sound of the week table ready for our silly soup. You could make your own Silly Soup at home with your family. Teach them the song (Tune: Pop Goes the Weasel) and collect lots of ingredients beginning with b - maybe have some cheeky ones too that don’t begin with b to see if you can trick anyone!
